Angry Aztecs by Terry Deary

According to the opening section of Horrible Histories: Angry Aztecs, this book will teach a little bit of history and a lot about people, but the most important thing is that it will teach children everywhere how to drive their teachers stark, staring mad by repeatedly asking the most dreaded question of all: WHY?

Why did the Spanish want to steal the Aztecs treasure? Why did Aztecs eat scum? Why did Aztecs drink live toads in wine? And why is the world going to end on December 22, 2012?

Angry Aztecs is recommended reading for grown-ups who want to prepare themselves for the onslaught and an absolute must for children who want to find out a little bit more about the mysterious Aztecs than the serious history books are willing to share.

Great, grubby fun and an excellent choice for anyone who is curious about these curious of folk.
